iraq supporting bashar al assad. in afghanistan because we tell them we're leaving, we now have this terrible afghan-on-american shooting, and all the president says is -- we are leaving, we are withdrawing. the iranians don't think we're serio serious because we spend our time selling israelis not to attack. the most shameful thing in american history in syria, while 30,000 people are massacred there, the iranians have people on the ground and the massacre goes on. everything they said would happen if we intervened has now happened because we didn't intervene, including rising influence of al qaeda in syria. it's terrible, it's disgraceful, and it's feckless and it is a president who believes in leading from behind. >> senator mccain, thank you very much for joining us. we hope you'll come back and join us again soon. >> any time. >>> we have called the white house to invite them to put a representative on to talk about either of the two jobs stories we just covered. we have not heard back. but we've got a guy who's really just as good on it. jared bernstein, former advisor to
has been missing in syria since mid august. a video posted by supporters of the assad regime. the man is blindfolded and clearly in distress. he's being shofred by militants. his family and two news organizations he works for say the man is tice. but the state department says it cannot verify it's him at this point. >>> police in philadelphia are investigating an accident, incident that was caught on tape during sunday's puerto rican day parade. the video shows an officer punching a woman in the face. and knocking her to the ground. authorities say the woman was throwing water or beer on the cops prior to this incident. philadelphia police say the officer's been identified, he has been taken off the street. they're conducting a full-scale investigation. >>> three cars on an amtrak train are derailed south of fresno, california. wow that's not a good angle to be sitting at. officials say a tractor trailer failed to stop at a crossing and plowed into the side of the passenger train yesterday afternoon. more than 170 people were on board at the time. dozens were injured. luckily the inju
to be syrian army officers and assad regime security forces. leland vittert is live in our middle east bureau with the latest. leland? >> reporter: gregg, this really shows how sophisticated these attacks are becoming. these bombings were sophisticated on number of levels, happening within minutes of each other, well-coordinated. not only that, the bombers were able to get in a very secure part of aleppo near the syrian headquarters. lastly the bombs themselves were well-made and clearly devastating in their effect. images coming from syrian state tv shows the same kind of damage to full blocks of aleppo in the government controlled areas. same kind of damage we're seeing in the rebel controlled areas coming from those deadly attacks with certainian -- syrian artillery. this points much more to jihadist movements rather than homegrown rebel fighters, fighters coming out of places like libya and iraq with expertise and also al qaeda linkage what we're seeing here in syria. this fits much more with the syrian government narrative going forward which complicates, things, gregg. you know it used
them that would give them a way to fight back against president assad's helicopters and his air force. we also got disturbing word from the rebels. they posted the video. we have a still frame from the video to show you of a number of iranian hostages being held by the rebels. they say they will start executing those iranian hostages if the syrians and iranians do not start releasing syrian rebel prisoners. this will be a real test in terms of how much iran is willing to stand behind president assad, if they're ill willing to see their own people executed to try to keep up pressure on rebels. the next 48 hours will see how that will play out. as we know there is a lot of pressure right now on president sass saud even though there is what you might call a tense calm on the border after the skirmish you talked about in the beginning jenna. right now the turk kish it foreign minister said it would a serious mistake to underestimate turkey's resolve. as we've seen the past don't four, 48 hours, it could easily snowball into a regional war if there is anymore firing into turkey from syria
because no longer is it the rebels on one side wanting president assad gone and the government on the other side continuing to fight its own people. this group of extremists that has now come on means, jon, if in the future assad does decide to leave power, the civil war could easily continue between the rebels where local syrians want a better life for themselves and their country and the jihadists who clearly want an islamic state inside syria. jon, back to you. jon: leland vittert, thank you. jenna: flying dragon now on its way to international space station. remaining on course despite a problem with an engine. the game of changing mission and what happened specifically with that engine. what went wrong there? >>> plus, a mission in the other direction. right now a daredevil sky diver is getting ready the to jump from a balloon 23 miles above the earth. why, you ask? we'll tell you next.
